Japanese singer songwriter and rapper HARU NEMURI who is well known over the globe for her unique blend of hip-hop, electronic music, noise pop, and punk rock will be revealing her music video for her newest single bang set to be released on January 15 th, Friday.
The track had been recorded at Happycat Recordings studio in Tokyo, then sent to Los Angeles to be mixed by Treehaus Recording’s Justin Gariano and Dusty Schaller, then mastered by Marsh Mastering’s Stephen Marsh.
bang will be her first work in a half a year since her last fund raise single Heart of Gold (DEMO) for the Black Lives Matter protest movement and first release kicking off 2021. The song contains a glimpse of her experimental side with both alternative and progressive sounds blasting with full of aggression and a sense of urgency. Though the lyrics are all in Japanese they are arranged in a style that would fit the familiar Western mainstream music. Haru “shouts” throughout the song and to express and to scoop the hardship of living for the future and present as well speaking for the minorities hidden behind the majorities.
The music video had been shot in Japan and both in Los Angeles being planned, discussed, and produced all remotely. The music video was directed by Donya’ Greenwood II and filmed by Sol Films. The aggressive video embodies the depressed, pointless impulse as Haru performs in the city of Los Angeles (filmed on “Skid Row” and Hollywood), where the population has dwindled due to COVID-19, with her whole body. We catch a glimpse of Haru’s face as she angrily believes in the unseen freedom that might have been created by the act of thinking, despite her despair.
